Get tips on tomatoes, veggies at ‘Second Saturday’ walk

Veteran Master Gardeners Laurel Moulton, Audreen Williams and Jeanette Stehr-Green give gardening tips from 10-11:30 a.m. Saturday, June 9, at the Port Angeles Fifth Street Community Garden for the monthly “Second Saturday Garden Walk.”

The monthly walks, held at 328 E. Fifth St. in Port Angeles just off of Peabody Street, are free and open to the public.

Guides will point out what grows well on the North Olympic Peninsula, review what needs to be done in the vegetable garden and share control measures for common pests and diseases popping up in the garden now.

The focus for June will be on growing tomatoes, fertilizing vegetable gardens, weed control and early spring pests such as click beetles and leaf miners.

The garden, developed on city property in 2011, includes more than 50, 9-by-12-foot plots worked by local gardeners.

Master Gardeners are volunteer educators. For more information about the program, go to or call the Clallam County program coordinator at 360-565-2679.
